Ricky Tiki Tavi Update

Hey Everykitty -
I thought I would let everyone know that I am doing great here at Casa de Parker. I also thought you'd like to know that the 'rents found out about a little secret that I had been keeping. I can't hear anything. I am a deaf kitty. That's right, no sounds, no nothin' Nada, Zip Zilch. I went for for my final hearing teats yesterday and it's true. The experts think that the horrible ear mites that I had before the 'rents found me wrecked my hearing. I am not even a candidate for cochlear implants. You know what? So what? I am loved and I am a very happy boy. Just because I can't hear, does not mean I can't live a long and happy life with my 'rents and my sibs. I get a lot of love from everyone and I enjoy playing and snuggling and loving on everyone,
Life is good and I am so happy I found this home to be a part of!
Love,
Ricky Tiki Tavi

You are right! So What! It just means you needed to be an inside kitty even more! It is good to see you and Rudy sharing the chair!

Don't worry Ricky, there are a lot worse things than being deaf, and we know that with the loving family you have that it won't cause you any problems.

Tillie and Georgia said...

we say all the better to ignore the 'rents and the other kitties!!!

Sparkle the Designer Cat said...

Ricky, clearly you did not need to hear to have an awesome life! But it is good for your humans to know so they can look out for you in certain ways a hearing kitty would not need. I am glad you are doing so well with your not-so-new-now family!

The Island Cats said...

Ricky, we're so glad you are doing well...even if you can't hear. Not being able to hear should be no problem for you!

Meg & Quill said...

SO glad you found yourself (with Parker's help) a great home!

Sweet Purrfections said...

That just makes you more special. You have very special parents.

A few Good Cats said...

Ricky, that's the way to play the hand you're dealt. You're gonna be just fine.

Prancer Pie said...

That was a big secret. We think you'll do just fine. Love is the most impawtant thing to have. XOXOXO

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Oh my! But I am glad that you have a good home where hearing doesn't matter so much--cause you'll get that many more loves cause you are special.

This is a very sweet update~

Max said...

People don't say much worth hearing anyway...at least you're in a place where they'll make efforts for you, and you won't miss it when treats are being handed out. They'll make sure you get 'em...

Ricky I am a 19 yr. old tabby who suddently went totally deaf about 5 yrs, ago. My Mom thought I just got over being afraid of the rug sucking machine, but then she figured out I was happy cuse I couldn't hear the dran thing anymore. I don't mind not hearing because Mom figured out that I needs a nightlight in the litter box room (good light helps compensate for hearing loss). We learned some great hand signals & Mom makes sure to pet me lots extra. I do yell when I am asleep and someone touches me and I also talk a little too loud, but no real problems. When I lived with a couple of other cats I was worried about them sneeking up on me. You might have this issue with you know whos. Sorry your deafness can't be fixed, but you'll be fine.
Play it for all its worth! You don't have to listen to all those orders to "Stop that" & "Get down" any more.

Barb and TheDailyGs said...

Oh, honey! I am SO glad you're there in O HI O with your 'rents and sibs. You'll be better than peachy, honey pie!

Cory said...

Ricky...being deaf has it's advantages! I had my hearing for most of my life and now it's almost all gone. I'm going to be 17 years young this coming May. You know what? Now I don't have to listen to the other cats meowing about boring stuff and I can never take the blame for not paying attention to whatever. The best part is that I don't wake myself up when I snore! Ha!

Purrs,

Madison

D Ma said...

It's great you found a great home that'll more than make up for your deafness. Diego-San wishes he could be deaf during guitar practice time....

ABBY said...

Awww Ricky we are sorry you cannot hear but we know that it something everyone can adapt to. We are just so glad you are in such a happy place.

meowmeowmans said...

Ricky, you sure are awesome. And so are your parents. :)

Derby, Ducky said...

So what that you can't hear. Yeah, when the food cans get opened you might not be the first one there, but just follow the crowd. You found a great home, enjoy it.

William said...

That just means that your other senses are that much stronger right? I bet the peepul will give you more attention and treats too.

Barbara Bowden said...

So glad you are happy Ricky, my name is Bruno and my rents are good to me to, tho' I have no sibs.

Shaggy and Scout said...

Ricky we know you will make the best of this and you have purrfect pawrents who are patient with their kittehs and a great brother in Rudy Toots to stick by your side! We hope those mites didn't hurt you too much when they were doing that job on your ears. xxxooo

Cat Street Boyz said...
